Oyster Week began as an idea in NYC in 2011. Our idea became a reality, when we produced our first New York Oyster Week in September of 2012. Since then we’ve grown into a community of oyster producers, distributors, restaurants, shuckers and consumers that we call The OysterHood, which was launched in 2014. In 2017 we added Miami Oyster Week to our group of event series. And - of course - we are working on several other markets in the US, Canada and Europe. Philadelphia Oyster Week is our next major project and slated to run October 19th-28th, 2018.
Oyster Week event series around the globe are flagship productions of The OysterHood, your global headquarters for oyster appreciation, information and experiences.
During an OYSTER WEEK we produce and present a curated collection of original and exciting Oyster-Centric events. Our event calendars have something for every budget, schedule, personality and location. From affordable and rowdy fests with rocking raw bars to refined fêtes, swanky socials, and sexy soirées, where Ultra-Premium Oysters and other DelicaSEAS are showcased, there is something for the bivalve curious and the oyster aficionado, and everyone else too.
